Captives: Britain, Empire and the World 1600-1850 - Taschenbuch

2003, ISBN: 0712665285

[SR: 471927], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780712665285], Pimlico, Pimlico, Book, [PU: Pimlico], 2003-09-04, Pimlico, Captives Ranging over a quarter of a millenium and four continents, this book uncovers the lives, deaths and autobiographical writings of a vital but forgotten constituency: the tens of thousands of men and women who took part in Britain's rise to imperial pre-eminence but who got caught and caught out. Full description, Linda Colley's Captives: Britain, Empire and the World, 1600-1850 looks at the history of British imperialism from an entirely novel perspective. Instead of concentrating on the familiar tales of those who got away with empire--emigrants, fortune-hunters, generals, missionaries and statesmen--she focuses on the narratives of those British men, women and children who were captured. Colley points out that whether in the Islamic Mediterranean, tribal North America, or the Mughal states of India, the British overseas were always vulnerable to the mighty powers of other European and non-European empires. Many were taken prisoner, some sold into slavery and not a few literally went native--taking on the language, costume and religion of their captors. Colley, author of the widely-read and hugely influential Britons: Forging the Nation, 1707-1837, has discovered and recounts some hundred or so of these stories, many of them accompanied by sketches and illustrations. She uses this fascinating material not only to highlight the adaptive and cross-cultural manner in which the British interacted with other empires and peoples, but also to reflect on how, when and why the British were able to transcend their small island status and become an enduring global power. Beautifully written and handsomely produced, Captives should be read with care. It is a most profound, original and erudite study of the British empire, with implications for how we think about race relations, Islam and the West, and the global reach of modern day America. --Miles Taylor, 65471011, England, 65458011, Europa, 65140011, Geschichte, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65500011, Irland, 65458011, Europa, 65140011, Geschichte, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65611011, Renaissance, 65597011, Weltgeschichte, 65140011, Geschichte, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 69108011, Sozialwissenschaften, 69109011, Anthropologie, 56779011, Archäologie, 69165011, Besondere Gruppen, 69180011, Bibliotheks- & Informationswissenschaften, 69119011, Bräuche & Traditionen, 1321878031, Demographie, 65292011, Diskriminierung & Rassismus, 1321879031, Emigration & Immigration, 69122011, Folklore & Mythologie, 69135011, Forschung, 69123011, Frauen- & Geschlechterforschung, 69129011, Gerontologie, 69178011, Gewalt in der Gesellschaft, 69130011, Humangeographie, 69177011, Kindheitsforschung, 69272011, Linguistik, 69179011, Medienwissenschaften, 1321880031, Methodik, 1321881031, Nachschlagewerke, 69132011, Philanthropie & Wohltätigkeit, 69214011, Philosophie, 69216011, Politikwissenschaften, 64591011, Popkultur, 69133011, Pornographie, 69136011, Sozialarbeit, 69137011, Soziologie, 69176011, Statistik, 69028011, Sachbücher, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher

2003, ISBN: 9780712665285

ID: 6283028

Ranging over a quarter of a millennium and four continents, Captives uncovers the experiences and writings of those tens of thousands of men and women who took part in Britain's rise to imperial pre-eminence, but who got caught and caught out. Here are the stories of Sarah Shade, a camp follower imprisoned alongside defeated British legions in Southern India; of Joseph Pitts, white slave and. Ranging over a quarter of a millennium and four continents, Captives uncovers the experiences and writings of those tens of thousands of men and women who took part in Britain's rise to imperial pre-eminence, but who got caught and caught out. Here are the stories of Sarah Shade, a camp follower imprisoned alongside defeated British legions in Southern India; of Joseph Pitts, white slave and pilgrim to Mecca; of Florentia Sale, captive and diarist in Afghanistan; of those individuals who crossed the cultural divide and switched identities, like the Irishman George Thomas; and of others who made it back, like the onetime Chippewa warrior and Scot, John Rutherford. Linda Colley uses these tales of ordinary individuals trapped in extraordinary encounters to re-evaluate the character and diversity of the British Empire. She explores what they reveal about British responses to, relations with, and frequent dependence upon different non-European peoples. She shows how British attitudes to Islam, slavery, race, and American Revolutionaries look different once the captive's perspective is admitted. And she demonstrates how these individual captivities illuminate the limits of Britain's global power over time - as well as its extent. Richly illustrated and evocatively written, Captives is both a magnificent and compelling work of history, and a powerful and original reappraisal of the significance and survivals of empire now.
